Songs From the Pearl

Travis Wellner

Song Of The Family

We Are Family - Sister Sledge

We Are Family By: Sister Sledge

"We're giving love in a family dose."

"I got all my sister with me"

"We are family"


This is related to the book because in the beginning of the book it describes on how happy Kino is that he is apart of his family. On page 77 Kino wants to separate from his family so he can take his hunters off of their track. But Juana refuses because they are all one family and will either succeed or fail together as a family. Like in the song it says with all her sisters they all come together to make one family.


I chose this song because it clearly describes kino's family as a whole. Throughout the whole book even through good and bad, they always stayed together. For example when Kino punched Juana and then killed a man, Juana loved her family and would never leave Kino, so she ran away with him even know this whole time she was against the pearl.

Song of The Evil

AC/DC Highway to hell (with lyrics)

Highway to Hell AC/DC

The reason why I chose this song was because it describes how the song of the evil is written. For example on page 4 everyone stood still but could not do anything besides pray to god, because at that point if they tried to grab it the scorpion would of bite Coyotito. Whenever the song of evil is playing it is telling the readers that something bad is going to happen.


The reason why I chose this song was because it fits really well with the book. One reason why is when ever something bad is about to happen or just happen the song of evil always plays. This song fits well because it could symbolize that maybe the evil or the devil is coming out on the "highway" for example.

Song Of The Enemy

Shinedown - Enemies - Lyrics

Enemies Shinedown

In the book the song of the enemy comes up a lot throughout the book. One example is on page 14 when the priest comes to visit and the song of the enemy begins to play. This is foreshadowing that something bad is going to happen or the priest was not their so Kino would donate to the church.


I chose this song because it says how once you start you can't stop and that's what was happening with kino and the pearl. Another thing it said was it turned the one's that you love against you. That part is also true because once he beats up Juana and kills a man she starts to go against kino but shortly after rejoins with him.

Song Of The Pearl (beginning)

Pink Floyd - Money - Lyrics Video

Money Pink Floyd

In the beginning of the book whenever the song of the pearl appeared it brought up good thoughts and feeling. For example on page 24 the song of the pearl comes up when Kino is asked by Juan Tomas what he is going to do with the great fortune that he had found. Then he went on to describe that he was going to get a real wedding, a good education for his son, and a rifle.

I chose this song because it is singing on how all the things they could do with the money. For example in the song they sing that they are going to buy a new car, four star day dream hotel, and a football team. This is related to the story because when the song of the pearl appears he describes everything that he is going to buy.

Song Of the Pearl (End)

Nine Inch Nailes - Something I can never have

Nine Inch Nails- Something I can never have

At the end of the book the song of the pearl is very different. The pearl is described as dark gray and evil. When ever something bad happened to Kino's family that was involved with the pearl, the song of the pearl would play and that meant something bad was taking place. For example in chapter 6 the song of the pearl starts to play when Coyotioto was shot. It showed what happened when the song started to play.


I chose this song because it clearly represents all the bad things that have happened in the past. This related to the book because while they were walking through the town with Coyotio in their hands, it showed how much they regretted doing everything the had done with the pearl.

Song of the book

Queen -- Bohemian Rhapsody with lyrics

Bohemian Rhapsody

The song of the book is about how they are given a great opportunity to be everything that they could ever imagine. But as the story goes on it gives them bad luck until they finally get rid of all of their fortune to get rid of the evil. It is a song that goes from really happy to really bad.


I chose this song because it is a really good example of what happened during the book. For example it says how he stared out as a poor boy the same way as Kino was. Then it went on to say how after he killed a man everything started to change for him, and that was exactly what happened to Kino. As soon as he killed a man he had to fake their families death and become runners, and their lives would forever be changed.
